Acid sulfate soils map

This is an acid sulfate soils map for the Corio Bay area of Central Queensland. It shows the presence of, type of, and average depth to acid sulfate soil layers in polygons interpreted as relatively homogenous acid sulfate environments. A combination of soils description, laboratory testing, elevation and geology data, and API (airphoto interpretation) was used to construct the map.

This map can be viewed in Google Earth via the Queensland Globe. It can also be downloaded in spatial data format. For more information visit [Open Data Queensland] (
